    Nice!

    500+ pages of excellent reading! Brenna, burned out from her high stress job as a neonatal nurse, leaves her job and moves into her dream house and starts having unusual dreams...Anyone who enjoys romance, paranormal ( dreams/ ghosts?), or basically any well written fiction should enjoy this book! Note to author: a second book about Molly would be great!

    An amazing read...

    551 pages. This is one of the best books I have read. Joyce Burgess is an amazing author who makes you feel like you are right there in the book. I was pulled in on the very first page and could not put it down. Great flow of words that keeps your attention all the way through. I cried, I laughed and I could see myself living in this same town and same house. I recommend this to anyone that needs a "feel good" book right about now.

    Great story

    I loved this and could not put it down. The characters are believable and the story has the right balance of humor, romance, and ghostly encounters. Great free book with good length and character development. Will read more from this author.

    Amazing

    When I finished this book, I looked for it on b&n with my nook to write a review and couldn't find it. This is from my library. I hope this works. This was a great read. I had trouble putting it down, even though I had to work the next day. I wish I could find more by this author. I will be watching.

    Wonderful, refreshing story!

    I really enjoyed this story. Brenna, Molly, the men in their lives, the other people that are involved in the story, the pet members - all so real. The characters are well developed and very convincing. The conversations and actions between the characters flows easily and believably. I liked the dreams, in how the past history was portrayed. And, best of all - for me, at least - it is a good, long read!

    The Author takes you on a rollercoaster ride with this story. M

    The Author takes you on a rollercoaster ride with this story. MY OH MY!! It is a clean, romantic story that will tug on all your emotions. It is sad at times and funny. Not only is it about love, but great friendships and tragedy that helps us become who we are. This is a great read and well worth your time and for less than a dollar, a fantastic deal. (ljb)
